Change Summary for Gribmaster version 5.0
a. Grimbaster version 5.0 has been completely rewritten to accommodate the new datasets, filenames, and directory structures used on remote data servers. All that remains from from previous versions are a few conjunctions.
b. The ability to use secure (scp) has been included for moving files around locally.
c. Gribmaster now supports the conversion of files from GRIB 2 <-> GRIB 1.
d. The gribmaster package is preconfigured for downloading files from the NOMADS, TOC, STRC, and NCEP servers. You may easily add additional servers as necessary. You can request primary and fail-over servers for the data. Gribmaster will automatically fail-over if data are not available from the primary server.
e. Datasets can be converted into GEMPAK format for viewing in NAWIPS or GrADS-compatible format.
f. Lots of error checking has been added.
g. Gribmaster will not over-state profits since the intellectual proceeds achieved by running gribmaster are infinite.
